A recent survey by Pew Research Centre shows that around the world the Democratic nominee for president, Barack Obama, is strongly preferred as president of the US over his rival, the Republican John McCain. However in America it’s not so clear.

In Australia, 80 per cent of participants said they had confidence in Senator Obama, against 40 per cent for Senator McCain.

Similar results were reported from Britain, France, Germany, Spain, Japan and Tanzania.

American participants in the survey gave the two senators roughly equal scores.

Wake up America, it’s time for some enlightenment and Barack Obama is your only possible chance. McCain will be just more of the same.

    Hey Oz, I was hoping you could do me a favor and update the URL to Atheist Revolution in your blogroll. The URL should be http://www.atheistrev.com

    I’m optimistic about November. As long as W doesn’t pull out an October surprise, Obama should win. He’s not going to take the GOP smears lying down, like Kerry and Gore did.

    T&A I hadn’t thought of that, it was a favourite trick of Howard (our ex-PM) to come up with some ‘surprise’, usually terrorism related, just before an election. Nothing like keeping the populace scared to get them to vote for you! I’d hate to see GWB pull a similar trick, hopefully like Australian voters, Americans are starting to see past these sorts of tricks.

    All other things being equal, the opinion of other nations would definitely be a deciding factor. We need to be a good citizen of the world again.

    Of course, Obama and McCain are far from equal. Everyone else’s opinion of Obama is just one more reason to support him.

    You can’t trust a stranger-you can’t trust Barack. He changes his position every day but the liberals will just vote for him anyway because 4 out of 7 days a week he says he’s liberal–they don’t ever try using their brains. The other 3 days each week he’s a centrist. He alrready said he won’t necessarily pull out of Iraq, he might not negotiate with Iran, and he might possibly under certain circumstances allow the government to support religous organizations. I just don’t see why liberals are so excited (Except the college kids who are inexperienced and stupid) he might not always ususally necessarily agree with any of their positions. The idiot’s jsut a tool. Hillary, at least, was smart and knew what she was talking about. I’m not excited about McCain, but he’s got my vote anyway.
